's chief foreign affairs >>> nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell interviewed a lot of scary people and dictators and ego maniacs over the years and over the years from doing that, she has endured these scary people and dictators and ego maniacs saying crazy things to her in close proximity. but also she has endured worse. >> when rice tried to challenge sudan's president omar al bashir, his security aides -- the security men tried to stop us from covering a photo opportunity. >> no. no. no. we don't let cameras into -- oh! >> reporter: when i asked sudan's president a question -- can you tell us why the government is still supporting the militias? they grabbed me from behind and dragged me out. >> when things like this happen to andrea mitchell because she is such a pro, she is totally zen through the whole thing. she does not crack up, doesn't yell at people. she doesn't let her jaw drop to the floor. he doesn't do a loony tunes style split take. andrea mitchell maintains composure in difficult circumstances. when something happens that causes you, the viewer, to b
inmates at the famous filipino prison hit the yard gangham style. ♪ >> and good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. only one day to go before mitt romney faces off against president obama in denver and our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows voters across the nation are placing more importance on these debates than the last time a sitting president ran and was challenged. joining me chris cizilla, managing editor of post politics.com and nbc political editor mark murray. mark, first to you, go through the numbers on the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. others have shown tightening of the race. when you asked voters whether they are looking to these debates more than last time did. >> people are paying attention. four in ten saying this is going to matter, be important to their vote, although worth noting about six in ten of the people said this wasn't going to be all that important. when you dig inside the numbers it shows that key parts of president obama's coalition african-americans, latinos, are actually putting a high importance on the debates which actual
, that segment will be coming up in just a bit. andrea mitchell is heading up our team working on that. tom brokaw is another member of our team in the arena, in denver. and tom, the conventional wisdom has a way of kind of bubbling up these days during the event. and i imagine one of the plot lines tomorrow will be here's mitt romney, as we said, energized, coming right from the game. he has been in an active, very active campaign heretofore, and the president has been on the job in that realm during this whole time. >> well, governor romney did spend a lot of time preparing for this debate, and it paid off. he had a well-organized narrative. he knew his brief. and this was the candidate that the republican party's been waiting to show up, as a matter of fact. and a lot of businessmen that i've talked to that have dealt with mitt romney in the past have been bewildered by his performance as a candidate. but this is the mitt romney that they described to me as he sat down at a table and did a deal. he had a cycle of themes that he wanted to keep coming back to. the objective realities of th
with andrea mitchell. >> did you mean to call barack obama the president of the united states lazy? >> yes. i think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas. he said, you know, they're making me do this work. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> do you want to respond to that? >> how do you respond to that. john sun nu has a pension for provocation. they can defend that insult, but last night the president again had a very clear adult conversation with the american people about the circumstances we're in today. mitt romney, like the true used car salesman he is, was all over the lot and spinning tales all over the place. people aren't going to buy that lemon. >> supporters of the president, some are not happy today. they feel for example aalone on the $716 billion that romney accused the president of taking out of medicare, the president did not refute that. let me play this moment. it has a lot of people concerned. >> on medicare, for current retirees, he's cutting $716 billion from the pr
and say what is it exactly that he said, and is it true? i know andrea mitchell did a good fact check on your air about this tax issue and how bogus his claim was that he's not supporting a $5 trillion tax cut that he can't pay for. so all of these issues are going to be discussed over the next 30 days. and i think the american people will sort it out. and they're going to make the right decision. >> you talked to the president after the debate last night. was he satisfied with his performance? >> well, like i've said before, the president's never satisfied with his performance. he's always challenging himself, and he will -- this, he'll review it, and if he wants to make some changes in the next debate, he'll do so. what he was satisfied with is that he went and he told the american people the truth. and i think he's fairly well convinced that governor romney didn't meet that standard. so, you know, that's going to be an issue in these coming 30 days. you know, you can't -- you can't tell the american people up is down and down is up and ignore your history and ignore your statements
really happened is that henry and i contacted our dear friends and ritu -- our dear friends andrea mitchell and alan greenspan about spending the evening with them, and we ended up in a hotel room with flowers. henry and i also sat with each other at defense policy board meetings, and we just spent a day and a half doing that discussing the very complicated issue of iran. at one of those meetings, henry told me -- this is very personal -- that i was his jewish mother. [laughter] my response was, "henry, i'm sure you had one early in your life. you certainly need one, so i accept." [laughter] not an issue comes up from the end of world war ii to today, and even before that, that henry cannot put into a brilliant contextually famed for his world acclaimed book on china, he used the wilson center's archives project for much of his research. don't worry, he give us a full credit. as max frankel of "the new york times" said in reviewing that book, "henry kissinger was not the first emissary in china, but persisted over decades, spending the careers of seven leaders on both sides. diplom
the problems of america is. >> he called the president lazy and detached. andrea mitchell tried to give him a way out. >> did you really mean to call barack obama, the president of the united states, lazy? >> yes. i think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas, he said they are making me do this work. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. >> john sununu would not take back calling the president of the united states lazy. this man is republican worked for george w. bush, ronald reagan was in the white house ronald reagan of take naps during the middle of the day fame, he was president of the united states while john sununu was governor and he probably never would have said of ronald reagan that he is lazy. >> that's a really really good point you make. because you could legitimately say he did not prepare for the debate. >> certainly on style points. but when you take a look at barack obama substancively, the man -- this is a part of a right-wing theme that has been going on out there, mean, i hate that word but this is part of a right-
